So, I know I'm a bad blogger lately. Sorry. Moving on.
Here's what I've been up to lately:
Two days later, we moved in and it's been a whirlwind of unpacking and painting and cleaning and arranging (and rearranging) ever since. My first room to paint was my office because I couldn't function without a working office and neither of us wanted to set up the desk and bookshelves only to move them out again to paint. Here's my (delayed) before picture of the office:
You can tell I already started painting before I remembered to take a before picture. Oops!
Here's the after picture:
Ahhh. Very calm and peaceful and conducive to a productive day's work, don't you think? Oh, and by the way, Lobster and I have more books than God. Seriously, folks. We need professional help. We're book hoarders.
Anyhoo, this is Lobster and I driving to Oklahoma last Saturday. Why drive to Oklahoma? Well, we were going to "look at" a border collie. I say "look at" because most people can't just "look at" a puppy without bringing it home. And we are just like those people.
Meet Killian, our new one-year-old(ish) puppy!
Killian was rescued from a shelter that was going to euthanize him that day. The lovely woman who rescued him rescues border collies all over the country and fosters them on her farm until they find good homes. Killian (who was then known as Tip) had been with her since April and she and I had been emailing back and forth about him and whether he'd be a good fit for the Lobster family. She even tested him with cats for us! So we went to "look at" him in Oklahoma and now he's a good ol' Texas dog!
So, besides unpacking, painting, running a new house, working full time and raising/training a new dog, I haven't had much time for anything else. Momma needs a drink!
More pictures of home improvements will be forthcoming as said improvements become improved. Promise!
